[www.inewsguyana.com] – The budgetary allocations for the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment was approved last evening in the National Assembly, to the tune of $481M.

According to GINA, Minister of Governance, Raphael Trotman, was questioned on a number of proposed expenditures before they were approved. Included in the allocations approved was, $126M for Administration for the period January 1 to August 31.

Asked why the number of contracted employees increased from 17 to 38, Minister Trotman explained that it was as a result of the Ministry absorbing costs associated with Cuban doctors and other specialists.

Explaining an allocation of $267 million, Trotman said this amount, listed under Subsidies and Contributions to Local Organisations, reflects the outstanding money for the Three National Parks and the Protected Areas Commission, as these agencies were only receiving one twelfth of their allocation each month, since the year started.
